Oahu Bass Fishing - no longer available, sorry 
    

Lake Wilson on Oahu has been stocked with over seventeen different species of fish including Large Mouth Bass, Small Mouth Bass, Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Snakehead, Oscar, Tilapia, Red Devil, and the famous and tough-fighting Peacock Bass.  The Peacock Bass is pound for pound one of the top three fighting fish in the free world.  This predator of the shallows is only found in Hawaii, parts of Florida, Colombia, and Venezuela.

Your guides on Oahu are Ron "Opy" Johnson and Chris Wright and his father Stan Wright.  You had better come ready to work because these guys know how to get you into the fish.  Live bait and accurate casting can land you over 25 fish in one afternoon.  They welcome experienced, beginner fishermen and kids, although some casting experience is definitely a plus.  The more accurate you can cast, the more fish you will catch.   


The famous Peacock Bass

 

  
The Peacock Bass average 1 - 2 lbs with 3 - 5 pounders also in the lake.  The guide provides spinning and bait casting gear and you are welcome to bring fly fishing gear as well.

Lake Wilson is located in the middle of the Island of Oahu, about a 40 minute drive from Waikiki.  

The seasons
The following species are caught in fresh waters all year round, but certain times are often better than other for certain species. (Note: This is just a guide. Since the fish can't read the guide, success rates do vary year to year and month to month and fishing can be slow at times even when it's normally excellent or good)

From Harry & Debbie who fished with guide Chris:

"To say the least, our recent fishing expedition was... awesome. In spite of some typical Hawaiian showers, we had a good time and some great fishing for Peacock Bass with our Guide/Captain "Chris".
